Alisson and Fabinho set to start vs. Chelsea as Jurgen Klopp goes in for the kill

Jurgen Klopp will start both Alisson Becker and Fabinho against Chelsea as the German manager looks to move his side back into the top four.

This is according to a source close to Anfield Central that has been reliably informed on a number of occasions regarding team news.

The Brazilian duo will start at Anfield after missing recent matches for the Reds. Alisson was absent against Sheffield United due to the passing of his father, with the club giving him the time and space to grieve the tragedy.

Fabinho missed 4 games due to a muscle injury but Klopp is ready to throw him back into the thick of things.

Anfield Central has been informed that Nat Philipps will be the one to miss out but it’s unclear whether or not the 23-year-old is injured or if Klopp just prefers to have Fabinho at the back.

A win is absolutely crucial for Liverpool as they seek to return to the top four and by extension, secure qualification for the Champions League.
